Good buffet with all the trimmings But biscuits in Florida are different from the Northeast MS area a regional thing. Fruit, eggs, bacon pancakes, toast, home fried potatoes & more. Just about everything you could want. We were there just before they closed for the season. Clean and friendly staff. Ladies room had sea salt hand scrub in big shell... More

We stopped here for breakfast. The place is just average. Food was not all that great and the place could have stood to be a little cleaner. Not a great a value either considering you have to pay for drinks. I probably would pick another place next time.

I don't understand some of the reviews. We have been to this restaurant on more than one occasion. The food is good. The crab legs are cooked perfect every time. The staff have always been polite and courteous. Yes it is expensive, but we feel the menu is worth the price. Will definitely go back when we visit Panama City... More

The buffet for fantastic. The choices of food were great especially the crab claws and fish which is what we went for. You can eat until you are stuff. The entire family was pleased with this restaurant because it had food that we all liked and enjoyed eating. The waiter was very attentive and made sure that we had everything... More

We had heard that it was around 25.00 a person but I thought, if the food was great then it would be worth it. I was so wrong. The waiter greeted us and informed us that the price was 30.00 each do we still want to be seated. This was not an elegant restaurant but he made us feel like... More

Five couples went to breakfast there as we were staying right accross street at Chateau. The food was wonderful, more like homemade . Was really excited about potatoe pancakes but they tasted nothing like I know one should taste. Only buffet but kept very clean and full. Price $ 10.00 per person

This restaurant was almost directly across the street from our hotel. The had a great selection of good ol' southern type meats and veggies on the buffet. Our waitress was friendly and did her job well. We loved our meal!

We went there with some friends who wanted to go. For being in FL. it was a poor excuse for a seafood restaurant. The only non-fried seafood was pollack and it was dry and not very flavorful. The fried seafood, which only had 4 items looked something you would get at Captain D's. The fish cakes were ok and the... More
